Tarin Mountain Staffords
Staffordshire Bull Terriers
Set high above it all at 6300 feet elevation is home to Tarin Mountain Staffordshire Bull Terriers. Located in the lovely Southern California mountains on 5 acres of beautiful pines and giant black oaks are where we originated. My love for this wonderful breed came about in 1997 years ago while searching for a dog that was trustworthy and loving towards people~ especially children, yet had great strength with much agility and active enough to enjoy our mountain terrain but also not being a large dog. I came across the Stafford at a dog show and fell in love instantly. After research, it is the only breed to have the words 'totally reliable' in its breed standards and also is one of only two breeds to mention the suitability with children out of almost 200 breeds in the UK. I was sold!
Our first Staffy was a sweet adopted girl Ruby
then right behind her came my boy Hudson a.k.a. CH Crossguns Sirtainly Cool. Both of these wonderful animals helped raise both of our children, literally! The perfect Nanny.
Hudson was shown to his Championship by a year old. He was the most handsome fellow and had my heart. Loving his temperament and his "true to the standard" body type I knew I had found the perfect line for me. This line originates from Donnella's in the UK.
I have always wanted to start my own kennel and show dogs and that time has come for me now that our children are a little bit older. I searched and searched to find a breeder in the USA that cherished Donnella's pedigree and idea of quality that should be strived for when breeding. I was blessed to find Aran Isle Stafford’s in Ocala, Fl. and even more blessed to get one of their beautiful puppies from Quinn a.k.a GR CH Prada Classic Aranisle at Donnella’s who is the number 1 Stafford in the USA for three years running~my sweet Lucy a.k.a Aranisle Connemara Queen.
Hudson and Lucy are my foundation dogs for my selective breeding program. I truly believe that they both possess what the standard of a Staffy should be: fabulous temperament, excellent movement with discernable drive that proves to be a balanced dog, level top line and good bone along with
excellent health. It is my desire to continue the level of excellence that Donnella's dogs have.
Please be patient and grow with me as my vision and website grow, but also feel free to contact me for anything.
